Some of you are so ****ing disrespectful, regardless of whether their music was great or terrible, it's a loss and you should take it that way rather than be complete *******s about the situation.

Wow, there is a bunch of pathetic people here. Who cares if you didn't like the music, that doesn't give you any right to say you're glad he is dead so you don't have to listen to Slipknot anymore.

On hearing of Paul Gray's death, Jack Nicholson said in London last night 'I warned him' and refused to elaborate.

Are you ****ing serious? It doesn't matter if you didn't like Slipknot's music. Paul was a great person, and you seriously have no reason to talk **** about him like this.

I'm not shocked or offended by Slipknot's music, and it is sad to hear Paul died. But fans can't have it both ways. The band is known for being macabre and singing about death and violence. Their look is specifically intended to be shocking in a dark way. If you do that you can't expect people to only say nice things and peacefully mourn your death.

2 years ago Paul was busted because of a car crash... after a search of Gray's Porsche 911 the officers turned up two syringes, marijuana, and cocaine...

Do you guys have any doubt how he died?

Case closed.... next please

I wish that all of the rappers die next. Rappers make the S**t music not metal bands. All you haters out there. Just remember, Rock was out before Rap and Hip hop. So therefore, You guys are just black wanna be famous idiots. You will be missed Paul, Slipknot won't be the same without you.
